  • James 4:1-12
    In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, you will find the names of two ladies who could not get along with each other, Euodia and Syntyche (or, as it has been rendered, Odius and Soontouchy).
    They obviously had trouble working together. Then and now, the church is too often described in this little jingle:
    To dwell above with saints we love,
    O that will be sure glory.
    But to dwell below with saints we know,    
    Well, that’s another story!1

  • “The Basics of Wisdom”
    James 2:13-18

    The Book of Proverbs is considered to be one of the five wisdom and poetry books of the Bible. The other four are Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. I would like to begin with a couple of Scripture quotes from the Book of Proverbs. There is a certain madness to the order of which I placed each verse:

  • The Humane Society of Levy County Inc. was recently awarded a $20,000 grant to help spay and neuter dogs and cats in the county.

    Mary Flickinger, a representative from the spay and neuter program, said part of the money will go toward helping low-income families in the county spay or neuter their dogs and cats.  There will be a $5 co-pay, and those wishing to take part in the program--which is already booked solid until January--must fill out an application and show proof of low income.
